Overview

The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.

We had a campsite near Sedona. We wanted to visit the ‘Jerome ghost town’. A small village with a lot of tourists. The village doesn’t look like a ghost town. There are a few old buildings and they don’t look interesting or ‘cool’. We parked...More
